February was, as anticipated, pretty brutal.
Some high highs, some low lows, and very little time to sit down and write for the blog. It was to be expected but I am nonetheless surprised at just how busy I was last month and how scant postings have been.
I also missed some key acknowledgements, including but not limited to the passing of Ghostbusters Director Ivan Reitman and Sally Kellerman, M*A*S*H's Major Margaret 'Hot Lips' Houlihan and Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in Star Trek's 'Where No Man Has Gone Before'.
Now it's March 6th and you're getting my first post since the 1st of the month and it's, well, it's this; a rather lackluster effort if I do say so myself.
I'm feeling down. Bummed. Lacking in energy or enthusiasm. 'Burn Out' is not the right term as I am not feeling a lack of interest in RPGs, quite the contrary. Rather I'm tired - weary tired - of some of the gaming I am participating in. It's really one particular group and game but it has set off in me an overall dissatisfaction with my gaming. Again.
Not how I wanted to celebrate my 45th year Anniversary, let me tell you.
There is a possible light at the end of the tunnel but it seems more a possibility than a guarantee. One of my old groups from way back when wants to get together for a game of one of our favorite subjects. Sounds perfect right? Well after over two weeks of discussions only two of the potentially four or five players have supplied a character idea. We're supposed to be playing next weekend.
Online gaming is beginning to really irk me. A lack of investment among players irks me. The completely unnecessary overthinking of cowards in an adventure game really irks me.
I sit here melancholy and extremely irked.
We shall see where it goes from here...
